Takeru’s Leaving Party

Takeru Matsushita finished his studies here in Phoenix and is heading home to Nara, Japan tomorrow. It was wonderful that his presence brought us back together one more happy time as his humility, kindness and spirit of fun has done during the last year. We had a lot of laughs auctioning off the last few of the items from his apartment, lights, rice-cooker etc. But the surprise was how much his two pair of bachi went for. His recent odaiko pair and the three he has been using for the last five years. It is a measure of how deeply his spirit touched ours. We can be sure this is a year that we will never forget and one that will always bring back a smile. We look forward to seeing you again Takeru-san!Murray
